Description

You and a super intelligent snail both get 1 million dollars, and you both become immortal, however you die if the snail touches you. It always knows where you are and slowly crawls toward you. What's your plan? (stolen from reddit)

I just put the snail underneath a clear plastic box that is too heavy for it to move.;)

the snail is super intelligent and immortal. it could wait till someone or something moves it. or try eat/dig its way out. the snail has time. plenty of time

That is true, but I would place it where it won't be found, and the bottom of the box is plastic as well.

If that failed, I would just shoot it into space. Can't move towards me there!

hmmm. without being able to touch it that'd be hard. and as it's super intelligent, what if it planted decoy snails? it could be slowly crawling towards you while youre trying so carefully to put another snail into a rocket

Darn. No one else joined in the fun.

I misread the original description and thought that both the snail and I were super intelligent. Well, what is the way to get rid of the pesky snail problem?;)

If I also became immortal, I can't die from the touch of it. Now let's plan what to do with the 1 million dollars.

I mean immortal =/= invincible, right?

Yeah, but for 1 million dollars I can get many painkillers and live with wounded pride. :D

Take the snail's million dollars. It's gonna chase me anyway, might as well give it good reason.

I would travel by plane between north pole and south pole in regular intervals. Each time when the snail passes the equator I would travel into the opposite direction. :-)

It reminds me of It Follows :O

In any case, I'd capture the snail and put it in a plexiglass box. Fill the box with epoxy resin and seal it. Put it in a metal box and fill the gaps with resin again. Dip the metal box in a concrete block and the let it fall in the ocean. This should grant me enough time to live the life I want. And maybe complete my backlog :D

Invest most of my money. Leave it with someone I trust. They focus on the investing, I on the travelling. So, I'd move across the ocean to either Europe or America. Depends on where we start. It'd take a few years for the snail to cross the ocean, so I can wait for a while. Basically, I'd invest the money and calculate the speeds and chances for the snail to catch me.

I would avoid the snail until life got tiresome and then I would welcome it's sweet slimy embrace.

Is the snail super-intelligent compared to other snails or compared to humans?

Either way, I would pay some independent space ship company to shoot the snail to the moon. I'm pretty sure soon (if not now) $1 million would be enough to shoot an animal (or even a person) into space. If not, I'll invest the money while moving ahead of the snail, until I have enough to shoot it into space.

Snails are afraid of salt, being a salty person might help?

1- Well if I know which snail it is: I'd lock it in a box and keep it frozen in a deep freezer, while watching the box with a cam 24/7 and having motion detectors set up around the box.
2- If it is not possible to know which snail it is: I'd use the easy solutions listed in this web page
Wherever I go, I'll make beer traps, use copper tape and put salt on double sided sticky tape, set up motion detectors when I sleep also try to wear clothes covering my skin. I'd just try to have fun with my "immortal" life without worrying too much about the snail.

Whenever I see a snail crawling towards me (I don't even remember when this happened last time tbh) I'll use the first method on it and make sure to keep it locked inside a box. Who knows maybe one day I'll need it...
